The Climate-Positive Benefits of Concrete in Outdoor Architecture
Outdoor architecture has a vital role to play in the coming years to achieve net zero and carbon negative in the built environment, and it requires a more in-depth consideration of durable materials and their proper use. The resilience of concrete in outdoor design is well known. Still, more understanding is needed about modern concrete, the savvy use of this impressive material, and its actual impact on the environment. Specifying permeable pavers is an excellent example of an intelligent design strategy that decreases material use but increases environmental benefits. This course takes a deep dive into the use of concrete in outdoor architecture to benefit people and the planet.
